Yes, this was done earlier in the week by someone (not a member here), but it wasn’t and won’t be shared… for legal reasons.

Pete it’s $13.99 at Target here in HI. Pretty reasonable I think.

The Prodigy Debut at Number 1 in the U.K.; Van Halen Suffers Lowest Charting Record of Career
5:54 PM

[...]

Van Halen open at 74 with Tokyo Dome in Concert. That is the lowest chart position for any Van Halen album in the U.K., studio, live or compilation. Their previous low was number 45 for 1996′s Best of: Volume 1.

Ron beat me to it. Yeah – we most definitely want to stay away from that sort of thing here.

Once the tour gets rolling – there’s going to be a shit ton of stuff to enjoy – so there is plenty of stuff to look forward to. Not to mention, CBG will be releasing dozens of never-before-seen VH shows (mostly from the late ’80s and ’90s) in the coming years (basically, they’ll be coming out as fast as I can author them to DVD).

Great news, thanks for the info Randy! I was wondering how things were going with CBG5150. I love his videos and your authoring. Especially the ’88 tour, since there are not many good videos from that tour. Plus Eddie was still using the 5150 guitar. It was before the Peavey amps and EBMM guitars. I really like the tone from the 90′s as well, but the OU812 tour for me was the last link to the original brown sound. Here’s to another great year in Van Halen videos! :)

I just need to knock out a few more shows and CBG will start torrenting again. He wants to have a couple dozen shows in the can before he re-starts his series again. There are some absolute classics on the way.

As always, thanks for all your work. For non-US VH fans, people like you are a godsend.

ok..CDs arrived..well, I have to say this is a very nice live recording !

Dave seems to sing good, and he sings better at the end..

..I really like Wolfie, the bass presence..is much more present than RHRN.

Alex is the masterblaster, even if the the solo could have been more rock oriented :-)

then Eddie.. well, Eddie’s guitar sound is..I would say crispy , bright , intense !

It’s a very good record…listening to it carefully, I realise how difficult and articulate Van Halen music was and still is to play..

I discovered Van Halen, in 1993…when I bought the LIve RhRn with Sammy…

Well, with this original and official live recording with Dave, at least I have a(n almost ) complete picture.

I hear ya Mink I loved Eddies sound around that time now to me its just a average sound he once had a sound that you could know right away that it was Eddie now to me it could be anyone playing

Has anyone found it a bit distracting to have Wolf’s bass be so high in the mix???

Particularly, on the older Van Halen songs where the original bass was so low in the mix.

I know my brain will get used to it… but found myself distracted at times.

By the way, Dave’s voice sounds good for more than 90% of the album… still don’t understand why they didn’t fix some small parts, just to make it sound better. Nobody releases a live album without modifying it some.


The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

SAMMY HAGAR Says VAN HALEN’s New Live Album Features ‘Some Pretty Rough Vocals’ From DAVID LEE ROTH

Former VAN HALEN singer Sammy Hagar says that the band’s new live album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert”, contains “some pretty rough vocals” from David Lee Roth.

Released last week, “Tokyo Dome In Concert” is VAN HALEN’s first live album with Roth and it reportedly features no vocal overdubs.

Speaking to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Hagar offered his first comments on the new CD from his former band. He said: “I’m trying to tread lightly on the whole thing. Every time they do something, I’m like, ‘Oh my god, can these guys do anything worse to their reputation and to the level of the music of the band?’”
“They’ve got some pretty rough vocals,” Hagar said of Roth.

He added: “I try to stay away from criticism, but here I am, already starting this interview with it. It’s impossible. It’s impossible to stay away from. Standing back, I’m just going, ‘What the [expletive] are these guys thinking?’”

Hagar, who took over the singing chores in VAN HALEN after David Lee Roth left the band, is widely considered the better singer of the two. However, Hagar never managed to dazzle the crowd quite like Roth did. After an 11-year-run with the band, Hagar was fired or he quit (depending on whom you ask).

“The difference between Dave and I in that band, besides all the other million things, is that he can’t sing any of the ‘Van Hagar’-era songs, “Sammy told The Boston Phoenix in a 2012 interview. “Maybe he could do ‘Finish What Ya Started’, possibly — so that makes it kind of weird for [Alex and Eddie], I think, to take 11 years out of that thing.”

VAN HALEN guitarist Eddie Van Halen explained to The Washington Times in a new interview that recording a live album these days is a world apart from what it entailed back in the 1970s and 1980s. “In the old days, to make a live record, you had to have a mobile truck following you everywhere and all the B.S. that comes along with it,” he said. “Not to mention the money it costs. Nowadays, we’ve got a Pro Tools rig out by the console, and we just let it run every night.”

He continued: “When it came to doing a live record, none of us wanted to sit there and listen to 200 shows to pick the best one. So we left it up to Dave… Dave said, ‘How about Tokyo Dome?’ We said, ‘Fine.’ The bonus of that show was we didn’t have an opening act. So we played much longer. It’s about a two-hour show.”
